TB Assessment Now Required for Volunteers

September 29, 2017 at 5:50 PM

The state of California now requires all school volunteers to complete a TB Assessment.  This assessment is a questionnaire completed by your health care provider, or one of the CUSD school nurses; it is not the TB skin test.  If you have a current TB skin test, a copy of that will suffice in lieu of the assessment form.  To assist in completing this requirement, Garfield's school nurse, Kristy Brinkley, will be available on Wednesday, Oct. 4, from 1:15-2:30 in the Garfield library to complete assessments.  No appointment is necessary, and there is no charge for this service.  All volunteers who have previously submitted volunteer applications, but have not completed the TB assessment must submit the TB Assessment by Friday, October 6th.  Effective Monday, October 9th, all volunteers on campus or on field trips must have completed this state requirement.
